A structural thermal break to offset shelf angles from the backup wall.
The FERO FAST THERMAL BRACKET Advantage
Thermal bridging caused by conventionally installed steel shelf angles profoundly affects the energy efficiency of your wall system, limiting the effectiveness of insulation by over 50%. Standing off the shelf angle allows for continuous insulation behind the shelf angle, reducing thermal bridging by only 14%.

FAST Thermal Brackets are readily available in any size height or depth to accommodate any shelf angle, anchoring system, and backup wall type.
Installation is quick and simple—anchor the FAST Thermal Bracket into the backup wall and slip the angle in. In most cases, only one trade is needed onsite for the complete installation.

FAST Thermal Brackets offer significantly greater onsite adjustability than conventional angles. Slots on the bracket offer 1- ¾″ of vertical adjustability, and the FAST Thermal Bracket can be rotated to ensure the shelf angle is level. Horizontal adjustment is provided by FERO Shim Plates placed behind the bracket.
The depth of the FAST Thermal Bracket can be increased to accommodate any wall cavity size while continuing to use a standard 4×4×1/4” shelf angle. This eliminates the need to use larger, much more expensive shelf angles in walls with thicker insulation and larger cavity sizes.
The adjustability and ease of installation by a single trade also reduce cost by speeding up installation time and reducing labor costs.
